Judging by the last two trailers (which you can watch here), Deadpool is not skimping on the action. The Rated R Merc With A Mouth is going to deliver superhero violence of epic proportions. Courtesy of EW we have a new look at Deadpool’s fight with the film's villain Ajax (Ed Skrein). Not only that, we also get a glimpse into the kind of shape Ryan Reynolds had to get in before stepping into the crimson costume.
When talking about the climactic fight scene, Skrein used a boxing reference which seems perfectly apt for the preview. “Ryan’s like Muhammad Ali, dancing around, whispering in my ear,” Skrein told the site. “And I’m George Foreman. Every blow is like a haymaker and I just want to take his head off.”
But to get ready for that fight, both Reynolds and Skrein did quite a bit of bulking up. "Ed got yoked for the movie,” Reynolds joked. “I saw his arms and got pretty upset at myself for not working out harder.”
